Valentine’s Day! Most people tend to fall into one of two categories when it comes to this holiday: you either love it or you hate it. Well this year, we found a way to please you no matter what, by giving you our take on the perfect Valentine’s Day gift: Cocktails!

So with that in mind, we asked MADE WITH LOVE’s Ottawa and Toronto finalists to inspire us cocktail-wise, and here they are, offering us exclusive cocktail creations (which are made with love, indeed)! So, whether you’re having a girls’ night out, having a date night, or a cozy night in, there is always a place for a delicious cocktail!

Cheers to love and to creativity!
